For our 19th Annual Día de los Muertos, we honor the Aztec goddess who gave birth to the moon, stars, and the sun. Join us as we celebrate the divine feminine, the loving mother that unites us all. Coatlicue (/kwɑːtˈliːkweɪ/) “skirt of snakes” “mother of the gods,” is the Mexican Aztec goddess who gave birth to the moon, stars, and Huitzilopochtli, the god of the sun and war. Her most famous monumental representation was at the Temple Mejor in Mexico City. After the Spanish Conquest, the temple was destroyed, and her statue was buried because it was considered an inappropriate pagan idol by Spanish invaders. After languishing in obscurity for more than 200 years, she was rediscovered in 1790.
